LATEST HS2 CONSTRUCTION NEWS (last updated 13 January 2021)
A planning application has been submitted by HS2 to create temporary roads diverting traffic away from the B4525 and the Sulgrave Road, accessing the Magpie works compound.
HS2 will be planting 5500 trees over a hectare of land immediately north of the village, east of Banbury Lane, in late March 2021. The primary purpose is to screen the railway.
The peak HS2 traffic period for the B4525 is 18 months from early 2022 when the peak daily average HS2 traffic is projected at 500 HGVs and 1000 other vehicles per day in addition to normal traffic.
